@DIES IMMORTALES!!! Yeah, they helped a bit. Beforehand, I just felt crappy no matter what. But after the shots I could feel the difference between seasons. Like...hey I didn't feel *this* stuffy last month! If my insurance still covered it, I'd definitely do them again. I guess it takes 5 years to do the entire course, so I wasn't even halfway through.
@Emby The Lighthouse Inn, or something like that. I wrote about my trip here: http://www.postcardsandpaperbacks.com/2012/01/postcard-from-key-west-part-two-trip.html
The only downside was that we went in January so the ocean water was pretty chilly. I bet April is the perfect time to go!
@DIES IMMORTALES!!! ah the shots. I did those for about two years and then I went abroad and stopped. Good luck!
@Emby what hotel? I looooove key west. I went last year with the bf and we stayed across the street from the Hemingway house. It was awesome. Go on a sunset cruise! Just don't get accidentally wasted like I did. Sailors + open bar do not mix.
@DIES IMMORTALES!!! how was he going to decimate your allergies? Just curious. Mine have been killing me this past year...even during the winter! I have to take a decongestant every friggin day, plus eye drops, and a nasal spray.
I have way too many papers to grade this weekend....this semester I'm teaching 3 sections of Eng 102 and it's slowly destroying my brain. I barely have time to do my own writing, though I did manage to write a blog post for the first time in a month (Treacle tarts from Alice In Wonderland! http://www.postcardsandpaperbacks.com/2013/03/literary-eats-treacle-tarts-from-alices.html)
Anyone have advice for balancing work with creative pursuits?
@packedsuitcase have a friend go with you! I probably never would have gotten mind if I had been by myself. Plus, it's a fun bonding thing!
yay! I'm planning a months long solo trip to the UK this summer! I am scared/excited!
@Chills Edinburgh is definitely on the list as is the fringe festival!
@Lost penguin haha yeah last time I was there in 2006 I kept telling people that I didn't vote for Bush (my own paranoia) but everyone was lovely.I myself am from New England, which tends to be pretty reserved. very similar to the English reserve
